[ cheers ] but during governor romney's campaign for governor down there, he promised the same thing he's promising now. said he'd fight for jobs and middle class families, but once he took office, he pushed through a tax cut that overwhelmingly benefited 278 of the wealthiest families in the state and raised taxes and fees to middle class families to the tune of $750 million. does that sound familiar to you? when asked about this, he says these weren't taxes, these were fees, but keep in mind, there were higher fees to be a barber, higher fees to become a nurse. there were higher fees for gas. there were higher fees for milk. there were higher fees for blind people who needed to get a certificate that they were blind. he raised fees to get a birth certificate which would have been expensive for me.

the totally unimpeachbly nonpartisan and widely respected tax policy center did a report that concluded that mitt romney's tax plan would be great for rich people, and would hurt everybody else, the romney campaign's response to that was to go guns blazing against the nonpartisan tax policy center. just attacking them as an institutions. you don't like the message, shoot the messenger. last month after the bureau of labor statistics announced that the unemployment rate was going down, do you remember what the response was on the right? the right started attacking the bureau of labor statistics, as if they were the problem, because they said the unemployment rate was going down. it used to be that democrats and republicans would argue about how best to deal with some factual thing, some problem facing the nation. now, republicans do it differently. they do it differently than everybody else. this is not a mirror image problem on both sides. republicans do a specific thing. they refuse to acknowledge that a factual thing is a factual thing. and this phenomenon on the right, that we got so

of taxes. everybody's been talking about these swing states as if the tail can wag the dog. somehow if you win the swing states, you affect the whole rest of the country in doing so, when that's the residue. but if you spend all your advertising money and all your grassroots, all your social media, and you focus it all on ohio, that doesn't help you win in pennsylvania. it doesn't help you in minnesota or michigan. i'm wondering whether they got the thing wrong, possibly, the obama people, by putting all their faith in winning those seven states, or most of them. what do you think? >> i think that because of the electoral college, elections, presidential elections have to focus on swing states and have to focus on these emerging purple states, because as it turns out, the elections sometimes do hinge on them. this election does seem to hinge on these particular swing states. the reason why the polling is so confusing, chris, is because sometimes national polls don't take into effect the fact that we have an electoral college, don't take into effect that some of these swing states will be s

this as their friends and encourage them and support them, and by the way, we can't tax them to death. i was with a business person in st. louis, four employees in the electronics business. he said that he and his son calculated how much money they send to the government every year out of their business and he put down how much for the federal income tax and the federal payroll tax and the state income tax and real estate tax and gasoline tax. and it was over half of what they made. and he said, think about this. you start a business, your chance of success is not even as good as 50-50. most small businesses won't make it so it's a risky thing to do. then if you're successful the government wants more than half of what you make and so a lot of people decide not to build businesses. today we are at the lowest level of new business start ups in 30 years. i want to change this dynamic and make business recognize they have a friend in washington, not a foe. and i believe if we do that, we do those five things and get those five done we are going to create 12 million new jobs and more take ho
's a slope. they gradually go into these tax increases and spending cuts. they feel they can turn around and walk back up the slope, retroactively reverse the changes. in that circumstance, in that scenario, it creates a lot of uncertainty for businesses and for taxpayers. what will our taxes be next year? how are we going to make some plans for our business or personal finances? it's that uncertainty that's going to, i think, have adverse effects for the economy. >> okay. that makes a lot of sense. michael jones, how do you want to invest here with all this? >> i think there are times when the market is really simple. don't fight the fed. you certainly don't want to fight the fed when they've got the ecb, the bank of japan, the people's bank of china, and virtually every other central bank on their side. you've had unprecedentedly aggressive monetary stimulus. we have open-ended commitments to continuing that stimulus. that's a tail wind that i think investors ignore at their peril. the only things holding the market back are some uncertainties of the fiscal cliff, over what kind of ter
